"Comercial dew drop"
I have had my carpet down for 16 months. It has been a nightmare,first the carpet had white lines all across it,the company sent Stanley Steamer out the workmen had a helper that tracked grease all over it.They had to use alot of chemicals to get it out.The lines were removed. It has been 16 months and I started seeing these worn looking spots in traffic areas. I Contacted the company where I purchased it and they contacted Mohawk and they said I had to have it professional cleaned for the warranty to be good. I had this done.There was no change. Home Depot came out and took pictures of it and sent to Mahauk and they still won't stand behind the warranty on the wear. I will never buy anything from Mahauk again. They do not stand behind the warrenty.

"Mohawk's Five-Year Warranty is a Joke"
The carpet in my home is three years old. As I was vacuuming a few months ago (December to be exact), the berber carpet snagged and ripped up an entire long thread. I do not have pets, nor have I ever walked on the carpet with heels. Therefore, the snag was due to a manufacturing defect. My carpet installer just informed me (after a very lengthy claims process that they had to handle because nobody in Mohawk's claims department would help me) that Mohawk Flooring will honor the five-year warranty. However, it does not cover labor and, to make matters worse, is prorated! My total compensation? $34.10! I will never, ever install Mohawk Flooring due to its shoddy quality and even worse customer service.

Do not buy Mohawk Superstrand carpet. Your back will kill you after trying to vacuum it. I am so frustrated with this $5,000.00 purchase.

"DO NOT BUY SMART STRAND MOHAWK CARPET"
Do not buy smart strand silk carpet. I had this carpet installed in December in my guest bedroom. Worst mistake ever! I happened to accidently get a corner of it slightly damp. I immediately noticed the carpet becoming limp. The next day I noticed the backing peeling apart! Called the store I bought it from, they called the representative. Of course the rep said it was not a defect! What a nightmare if I had kids or pets! Waiting to hear from the rep again!

My wife and I were elated upon stepping bare foot onto our new mohawk smart strand carpeting, you've just never walked on anything as soft-silky- plush before! It didn't take long, however, for our opinion to turn to bewilderment and irritation as I pulled our new dyson vac out and tried to vacuum it, omg! Brutal! Tried all the mohawk suggested vac's, no way! Searched multiple websites, including youtube,( where I found a video showing a man vacuuming his smart strand with a canister vac, quite easily. Problem was that when I looked up the brand vac he was using. It cost more than $600.00. I found other vac's guaranteeing to work just as good, their cost was between $800.00-$1,000.00! Insane! Seriously exchanging the smart strand for something else, but I'm very happy to say that we decided that we just loved it too much. Our feet screamed, no, please don't! Well, I can say that everything turned out just fine...in the form of two relatively inexpensive brand vac'S. We had a portable, rechargeable, hand held shark cordless 18 volt, model sv780 n1 14, with a power brush head. It turned out to be great for vacuuming small areas. The real answer was to be my trying my 4.5hp wet/dry shop vac, for vacuuming the entire carpets, very easily. The long wand and light head worked very well. I think I paid $89.00 for it. Problem completely and happily solved and I'm back to loving my smart strand again! I'm planning on going one better by buying a newer 6.5hp shop vac. The increased suction should be perfect!

"SmartStrand Silk a BIG disappointment"
This carpet looks pretty and feels soft, but there is no cushion feel when you walk on it (installed with Mohawk recommended pad). Our old Sharp vacuum and a new vacuum (I.E. Hoover Wind Tunnel T-Series)on the Mohawk recommended list don't work - too difficult to push. Very expensive carpet and doesn't look as good or clean as well as our 23- year old living room carpet. Carpet loops keep coming out of carpet just walking on it (just two of us and no pets). Mohawk did not post the polite review I submitted to their website.

"Major Mohawk Carpet Issues"
Mohawk keeps telling their consumers that they need to buy a new vacuum to care for their carpeting. It looks like to me they never did any actual consumer testing of the product to see how the average homeowner would care for and use their product. When you call the "Customer Service" number they say we can email you a list of recommended vacuum cleaners. Well I don't see any way to discern by that list of vacuums which one or ones may or may not work correctly on their carpet. I have never in my life experienced a carpet that is so very tempermental that you had to buy a specific new type of vacuum and treat it in such a special manner in order to care for it. That alone is a huge problem and I don't feel as a consumer I should have to treat a piece of carpeting with kid gloves so to speak in order to have it in my home but that is exactly what Mohawk is telling me. It is already mashing down and getting worn in just a matter of days. I think they never even tested any of these newer SmartStrands at all and want the consumer to foot the bill! I have never seen a carpet that couldn't be vacuumed much less used!

"Do not buy Mohawk carpet"
We purchased EverStrand carpeting for our entire house. All but the family room were a very light cream color, The fr was a few shades darker on the tan side. From poor installation to carpet quality, the process has been a nightmare...not once, not twice, but three times! The first carpets began to show several zigzag marks, like dirty tire tread, each four inches wide, about four feet apart, in each room and on the steps in traffic areas. There are only two of us and we do not wear shoes in the house, only slippers and socks. I began to notice the markings about three months after installation. We noticed it getting worse, but we had no time to deal with the issue for almost 20 months from installation due to serious illness. First, Mohawk stated that they wouldn't do anything until we had them cleaned. We told them that we felt there was a major defect in the carpets and they were not dirty. They agreed to send someone to look at them. An independent inspector concluded that there was a defect caused at the mill. Mohawk agreed to replace them. Reluctantly, we had the same carpet installed with assurance by the store manager that they thoroughly inspect the carpets, especially rugs reinstalled on a claim. Time off from work again and the inconvenience of upsetting the house once again, was indeed an ordeal in itself. The new carpets arrived and I immediately saw lines running along the entire length, each about two inches wide, about two inches apart. I asked the installer about it and he said it was caused by the rugs being rolled up in the warehouse and they will settle. To make matters even worse, as the installers were packing up to leave, we saw what appeared to be a grease stain the size of a quarter in the middle of the hallway. The guy who was working that area all day acted as if he didn't know it was there. There is no way he didn't see it. They also did very much damage to my walls and moulding, an unreasonable amount of damage. We called the owner, they had someone come out to steam clean the spot. After several tries and lots of chemicals, the stain was nearly gone, but we could still see it and knew it was still there in our brand new carpets. We also complained about how dissatisfied we were with the appearance of the carpets. He told us that they did not notice the lines when they had them spread out for cutting in his warehouse the day before. I fail to see where they did not see it. It was so obvious that we noticed it immediately, in every light and area of the house. The owner contacted Mohawk. They agreed to another inspection. The same inspector couldn't determine the cause and sent a sample of the carpet to Mohawk with his report resulting in an offer of $1,100.00. An insult. The owner of the store agreed to settle with us and replaced the carpets, but they had to be Mohawk. We selected a Nylon fiber rather than polyester and we have been satisfied since installation six months ago. The exchange took three months and the previous carpets did not settle in that amount of time and I do not think that they ever would have. The stripes were still very visible, in both traffic and non- traffic areas. In research I found that it is a known defect and it has been called corn rowing. Time will tell how the most recent carpets will wear. Hopefully, well. Carpet installation of an entire house three times in two and a half years is just ridiculous, not to mention time off from work. We will never purchase another Mohawk product again. Neither will my family and friends.

Had Mohawk carpeting installed in my condo five years ago. Just my husband and myself, both age 74. We have no pets. Just the two of us who wear slippers all the time to protect our carpet. Our carpet is lousy junk. So sorry we paid so much money for such an inferior made carpet. It is crushed in all the traffic ares and looks like it is very old carpet. I vacuum twice a week and get loads of fiber in my tank. Rep from store called the crushed areas of carpet pooling. I keep my carpet clean but it looks dirty in all of traffic areas and yes I do have it steamed cleaned. Mohawk does not honor it's warranty at all. I'll never ever buy any of their products again. All I will say to anyone thinking of buying this product is "don't buy Mohawk, you will get scalped".
